Many things inspire a NIMBY (not-in-my-backyard) response from the general public. Construct a nuclear power plant? NIMBY! How about a strip club? NIMBY! Rifle range? NIMBY! One of the few uninvited things people don’t mind in their backyards is a bird. Considering that the Central Valley wetlands support more than 60 percent of the Pacific Flyway waterfowl population, birds in our area are to be expected, even welcomed. Learn about our feathered neighbors at Birds in Our Backyard, the Golden State Museum’s newest exhibit. Discover which birds are permanent residents at nearby wetland preserves and which are migrating from the Arctic to South America. The exhibit opens Tuesday and runs through April 8. Museum hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon until 5 p.m. Admission is $5. The museum is located at 1020 O Street. Call 653-7524 for info.
